ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — The Indiana Pacers were one of the NBA’s best teams for most of this season. And then the last two months happened, when absolutely nothing was going right. And now the Pacers find themselves down 3-2 in the first round to the Atlanta Hawks, the Eastern Conference’s worst playoff team.
Last night the Pacers fell behind with a brutal home performance, which included going down 30 at one point before a furious late rally made it a bit more respectable. When things aren’t going your way, nothing seems to work out, as we saw last night on this drive and dunk attempt from Lance Stephenson. (Hey Starters, I demand a recount!)
